Dear Chairman Murkowski:
On behalf of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES), I am writing in support of the nomination of Daniel Simmons to serve as an Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Energy, and to lead the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE).
Mr. Simmons has been leading EERE for more than a year, and he has established himself as a leader who understands the role that the free market and innovation play in developing new energy technologies. If confirmed, CRES looks forward to continuing to work with Mr. Simmons to promote policies that will increase abundant, affordable and environmentally friendly energy production.
CRES urges the Committee to support the nomination of Mr. Dan Simmons to serve as Assistant Secretary.
